    The Notion of Absurdity: A comparative analysis between an absurd and an ideal bureaucratic system2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The novel Catch-22 by Joseph Heller is described as a portrait of absurdities. This essay explores and answers the question as to what this absurdity can be derived from. Guiding research questions are: how is the bureaucratic system depicted in the novel, and how does this system compare to the ideal model of a bureaucracy created by Max Weber? Through a comparative analysis of these two texts the result is that various organizational structures of the system: rationality, consistency, rules and regulations, procedures, and hierarchy, each and together give rise to a notion of absurdity in the novel because of how these structures are depicted.

    I oss är en mångfald levande: Karin Boye som kritiker och prosamodernist1986Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this dissertation is to describe Karin Boye as a critic and a modernist novel writer. The material consists of Karin Boye's works, articles from newspapers and periodicals and secondary sources. The method applied is a critical investigation of basic hermeneutic principles with special reference to sexual/textual politics.

    The introductory survey of the development of critical methods in the Swedish literary institution from 1925 to 1935 shows the total domination of traditional hermeneutic methods based on an idealistic conception of man and on aesthetic norms and ideological presumptions inherited from the 19th century novel. The reception of Karin Boyes novels 1931—1934 shows to what extent patriarchal ideology also informed the critical terms. In later research on Karin Boye the interpretation of her early novels has never been questioned. Nor has her position as an introducer of the new modernist aesthetics as an editor of the avantgarde journal Spektrum or as a critic in the left wing press been regarded as a factor to take into account.

    In Spektrum Karin Boye formulates a radical program which combines the new aesthetics with the social situation of the time as well as with psychoanalytic theory. Karin Boye's awareness that the medium — language — was part of the modern writer's dilemma led her to explore new methods of representation. Like other modernists Karin Boye shows a desire for inclusive - ness. She looks for literary forms that can bring together the full complexity of modern experience in a meaningful way. Karin Boye stresses that the shift from traditional literary conventions to a new way of representation demands of the reader a far more active participation in understanding the work of art.

    In her novels Astarte, Merit vaknar and Kris Karin Boye develops her ideas of poetic language, which could have an emancipatory function in the life of modern man. She uses an experimental method to criticize the rationalism of the Platonic tradition. Karin Boyes way of organizing the text involves irony, the use of analogy and the mythical method. She also lets the novels draw attention to themselves as works of art, emphasizing that they are subject to the techniques of presentation the novelist adopts. A matter of special inquiry is the connection between women's liberation and the female writer's use of images, symbols and myths. The works of Karin Boye show an interesting relationship between feminism and modernism.

    Curses, Ogres and Lesbians: An Examination of the Subversion and Perpetuation of Fairy Tale Norms in Two Adaptations of Beauty and The Beast2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Fairy tales as a form of social acculturation can subvert and/or perpetuate potentially harmful social norms. In this essay, Chris Anne Wolfe’s lesbian romance novel Bitter Thorns (1994) and the film Shrek (2001) are analysed as adaptations of the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, with a focus on the extent to which they challenge and/or reinforce three fairy tale norms: women as tradeable objects, heteronormativity and idealised beauty. Both these texts can be seen as subversive, Bitter Thorns in how it challenges heteronormativity and Shrek in how it challenges the norm of idealised beauty. This subversion, however, is limited, as both texts do more to perpetuate fairy tale norms than to challenge them. They both reinforce the idea of women as objects for trade, Bitter Thorns perpetuates the norm of idealised beauty, and Shrek advocates heteronormative relationships and the dominance of heterosexual masculinity.

    Women, Animals and Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Approach to Margaret Atwood's The Edible Woman and Michel Faber's Under the Skin2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, Margaret Atwood’s The Edible Woman and Michel Faber’s Under the Skin are analysed from the perspective of feminist-vegetarian critical theory. Both texts deal with the idea of feeling like or being meat, but approach this idea from different angles. In The Edible Woman, the connection to feeling like meat is metaphorical and rooted in gender relations, while in Under the Skin, it is literal, related to the idea of being animal. What becomes clear through an analysis of these two texts is that they both deal with the interlocking oppressions of women and animals. In The Edible Woman, protagonist Marian loses her subjectivity and stops eating meat when, as a result of the dynamics of her relationship with her boyfriend (later fiancé), she starts identifying with animals that are hunted or eaten. In Under the Skin, the alien protagonist Isserley, as female, non-human and in her natural form looking like a kind of mammal, represents both women and animals in her objectifying returned gaze on human men. Examining these two texts together highlights the interlocking nature of patriarchy and speciesism, and shows how these oppressions are better understood in relation to each other.

    Hjalmar Bergman: korrespondenser 1900-19302012Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Hjalmar Bergman (19/9 1883-1/1 1931) är en framträdande och särpräglad författarprofil i svensk litteratur under förra hälften av 1900-talet. Hans rika produktion omfattar inte bara romaner, noveller och dramer utan även sagor, filmmanuskript, radiopjäser och översättningar. Bergman var också en tämligen flitig brevskrivare. Hans korrespondens finns till stora delar bevarad på olika arkiv och bibliotek i in- och utlandet. Här har publicerats enbart breven till vänner och samtida kulturpersonligheter (se nedan). De presenteras digitalt som en samlad textcorpus. Samtliga brevformer som vykort, telegram, visitkort har medtagits. I de fall där originalbreven saknar angivelser av avsändningsort och/eller datum har dessa uppgifter tentativt kompletterats inom klammer.

    Publiceringen syftar till att vara en digital forskningsresurs där breven kan lokaliseras på flertal olika sätt. Dessutom sätts brev i kontext då man enkelt kan se vilka verk, personer m.m. som förekommer i varje brev.

    För att orientera sig i materialet finns ett antal ingångar:

    1. Utforska breven utifrån adressater
    2. Utforska breven utifrån vilka personer som förekommer i breven
    3. Utforska utifrån vilkav erk som är omnämnda i breven
    4. Utforska utifrån breven utifrån verkens genrer

    Stilanalys och stildiskussion: En stilistisk undersökning av Olof Lagercrantz och en diskussion om stilistikens värde2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to examine two texts, one autobiography and one essay, by Swedish author Olof Lagercrantz, through the means of stylistical analysis and to investigate the worth of stylistics in regards of trying to capture the style of an author. The main questions are: Which are the distinguishing stylistic features of the two texts? and Is it possible to capture the literary style of Olof Lagercrantz through the methods of stylistic analysis? In aid of trying to answer these questions the methods of Per Lagerholm and Peter Cassirer is being applied. The results points to the autobiographical text being economical in language, dramatic, poetic and personal; the essay being intimate, formal, personal and creating participation. The methods of stylistical analysis is criticized for being a insufficient tool in the analysis, but its benefits are also pointed out.

    Portraits of women in selected novels by Virginia Woolf and E. M. Forster1979Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Female characters in novels by Virginia Woolf and E.M. Forster are studied in their relationships as wives, mothers, daughters and prospective brides. The novels selected are those where the writers are concerned with families dominated by Victorian ideals. Virginia Woolf: The Voyage Out (1915), Night and Bay (1919), Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927). E.M. Forster: Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905), The Longest Journey (1907) , A Room with a View (1908), Howards End (1910).The socioeconomic, religious and ideological origins of the Victorian ideals are traced, esp. as they are related to the writers' family background in the tradition of English intellectual life. The central theme of the four novels by Woolf is the mother-daughter relationship which is analyzed in its components of love and resentment, often revealed in an interior monoloque. Forster's novels usually present a widowed mother with a daughter and a son. It is shown how the plot, dialogue and authorial intrusions are used to depict a liberation from the constraints of the Victorian ideals of family life. The mothers in the novels of both writers are shown to be representative of various aspects of the Victorian ideal of womanhood. The attitudes of men towards women vary from those typifying Victorian conceptions of male superiority to more modern ideals of equality and natural companionship.

    Bilder av sorg, saknad och längtan i några barnböcker från 1800-talet och från 2000-talet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag vill med min uppsats försöka belysa hur bilden av sorg, saknad och längtan kan se ut om man jämför berättelser för barn som är skrivna på 1800-talet med hur barnboksförfattare skrivit under 2000-talet.Den metod jag använt för att undersöka de olika stilarna är ett litterärt experiment, i vilket jag gjort en omskrivning av några moderna berättelser och försökt att ge dem en karaktär av 1800-talslitteratur.Jag har för detta syfte valt ut två barnböcker som skrevs vid 1800-talets slut, nämligen Sagan om björken och stjärnan av den finlandssvenske författaren Zacharias Topelius och Den lilla flickan med svavelstickorna av den danske författaren Hans Christian Andersen. Dessa två berättelsers innehåll och stil har jag låtit färga två barnböcker skrivna under 2000-talet, nämligen Den dagen av Viveka Sjögren, utgiven år 2008, Ensammast i världen av Magda Eggens, utgiven år2003.Min slutsats är att bilder av sorg, saknad och längtan kan målas upp på olika sätt, och att tidsåldern förvisso speglar hur dessa bilder ser ut, men att de också kan upplevas olika beroende på vilka uttryck man använt.I min studie har jag tagit del av relevant teoretisk litteratur och har med stöd av andras forskning byggt ramar kring mina egna antaganden.

    Frekventa och solitära finita och infinita verbformer: Presens particip i aktiv i Eino Leino's Onnen orja2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Eino Leino (1878-1926) is considered one of the most well-known poets in Finland. Except poetry, Leino has written novels, short stories, as well as drama. In this paper the language in Leino´s Onnen orja is studied. Frequencies of finite and infinite verbs are investigated and compared with frequency lists. Among solitary, infinite verbs, the use of present participle in active is investigated in selected sentences. Present participle in active in the material is most commonly occurring as adjunct to a noun. Less common is the use of present participle in active in syntactic constructions (lauseenvastike). In some cases the present participle in active, occur in an elderly form of writing. This is probably due to the style of the author. Some sentences are shortened and therefore difficult to explore. However the novel Onnen orja shows interesting aspects of the author’s language and versatility in mode of diction.

    identity and worldview – “hard-boiled” writing in Thorsten Jonsson’s short stories

    This article deals with the Swedish author Thorsten Jonsson (1910–50) and his first short story collection Som det brukar vara (1939) [‘As it usually is’]. The nar- rative represents a new modernistic literary trend in Swedish prose in the 1930s. i take my starting point in Burgess & ivanič’s (2010) theories of the act of writing involving many different identities, and particularly what Burgess & ivanič iden- tify as the discursive self. By contemporary readers and critics the discursive self in the short story collection was often connected with an American hard-boiled literary ideal, often linked to ernest Hemingway’s writings. in this article i dis- cuss the common textual features of the two authors’ first collections, but also the differences that emerge when looking through the linguistic surface. The analysis shows that Thorsten Jonsson’s discursive self is based upon a northern Swedish culture, Hemingway’s on an urban American one.

    Glaspärlespelaren: Nya världar, etik och androcentrism i Peter Nilsons science fiction-romaner2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis focuses on Peter Nilson’s (1937-1998) science fiction texts, and particularly on how narrative themes and structures in these texts are related to science as well as to the literary tradition of science fiction (SF). The primary texts are the novels Arken (The Ark, 1982), Äventyret (The Adventure, 1989), Rymdväktaren (The Space Guard, 1995), Nyaga (1996) as well as the short story “Kvinnan som ville ha barn med döden” (The Woman Who Wanted a Child With Death, 1987). Nilson was an established astronomer before publishing fiction, and in both novels and essays he joins “the two worlds” of the natural sciences and the humanities. My study of the reception of his work shows that his symbolic capital, his authority as a scientist, was transferred from one field of knowledge to another, thus increasing the value of his SF texts in critics’ eyes. Central to my analyses are the authorial strategies Nilson used when building bridges between natural science and the humanities, in a move evoking the Glass Bead Players in Herman Hesse’s novel The Glass Bead Game. My study shows that, unlike Hesse’s protagonists, the Glass Bead Players in Nilson’s texts accept, or even welcome, extreme consequences of scientific developments, such as the extinction of life as we know it.SF texts are traditionally categorized as either dystopic or utopic depending on the level of pessimism or optimism in their depictions of technology. I suggest instead that dystopic or utopic outcomes in modern SF novels depend on whether the texts build on an aleatoric or a teleological worldview. In aleatoric narratives, humankind is depicted as alone in the universe and thereby responsible for its own destiny. Teleological narratives feature superior, god-like forces from other worlds, which interfere with life on Earth and may elevate humans to higher levels of consciousness. The latter perspective, which is favoured in Nilson’s SF texts, entails that responsibility is removed from humankind since what happens is presented as meant to be. The tropes of the void and of creatio ex nihilo are recurrent in the examined texts, for instance through the use of myths and archetypes containing images of emptiness such as the “creation out of nothing”. Further, Nilson’s characters are often situated in a mental or physical “void” where their knowledge is of no use to them. My readings show that these voids are not empty but contain mythical and archetypal elements which activate obsolete religious ideas and gender models, such as the Logos vision: the creative power of words. This conservative tendency seems all the more surprising and problematic considering that the SF-genre is based on explorations of possible new worlds and beings.

    Omodernt: Människor och tankar i förmodern tid2009Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kan vi idag ha något att lära av de klassiska, medeltida och tidigmoderna kulturerna? Många skulle svara ja på den frågan, men det finns också de som skulle beskriva det förmoderna som irrationellt, traditionsbundet, kollektivistiskt och framför allt otidsenligt.

    Att behålla kontakten med det förmoderna behöver inte betyda att man bekräftar ett "arv" från det förflutna eller ägnar sig åt återbruk av äldre tiders idéer. Bättre är att omvandla, utveckla eller avveckla tidigare tankar eller kritik kring sociala och estetiska mönster. I antologin Omodernt - Människor och tankar i förmodern tid medverkar elva forskare som representerar en rad humanistiska discipliner. Deras texter berättar på mångfacetterade sätt om idéer och föreställningar, språk och texter från antiken till 1600-talet som är relevanta än idag. De argumenterar för vikten av kunskap om de perioder som ligger före vår moderna tid och ger konkreta exempel på forskning i den andan.

    Det viktiga är att uppmuntra kommunikation över seklen, viljan att vidga sina egna associationer kring mänskligt handlande, att fördjupa sina insikter om hur människor i historien försökt att hantera sin existentiella och samhälleliga situation. Genom sådana perspektivbyten kan vi i bästa fall få klargörande idéer även om vår egen tid.

    Den sentimentala romanen och kampen för medborgarskap: Rousseaus Julie och Staëls Delphine2009In: Sjuttonhundratal: Nordic Yearbook for Eighteenth-Century Studes, ISSN 1652-4772, Vol. 2009, p. 22-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The tragic fates of a great number of women in sentimental novels of the eighteenth century can be viewed against the background of classic liberal theory. They provide examples of how individual freedom and restraint in the name of the common good can be reconciled. Faced with the impossible choice between a life guided by the principle of love and that of virtue, women often choose self-sacrifice as a means of preserving a sense of individuality in the face of the demands of public universality. The epistolary novels, Julie ou La nouvelle Héloïse (1761) of Jean Jacques Rousseau and the Delphine (1802) of Germaine de Staël, present two rather different treatments of this problem. Rousseau´s Julie is a woman whose unquenchable desire transforms her into a prototype of female unreliability not worthy of societal recognition. Staël´s Delphine, in turn, unmasks a ruthless and unpricipled society which prohibits her from becoming its full-fledged member.

    Sargassohavet stormar: Om kritisk läsning av skönlitteratur i syfte att uppnå skolans värdegrundsmål2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka hur man som lärare kan arbeta med kritisk läsning av skönlitteratur inom svenskämnet för att diskutera och uppnå läroplanens värdegrundsmål. Genom mitt arbete har jag försökt svara på frågor som vad det innebär att arbeta med värdegrundsmålen i skolan, hur man kan använda skönlittertur som medel för att uppnå värdegrundsmålen, vilken typ av skönlitteratur som passar sig för ändamålet och vad kritisk läsning egentligen är och hur det kan inkluderas i undervisningen. För att kunna lyckas med detta har jag själv läst och analyserat Sargassohavet av Jean Rhys ur ett postkolonialt, feministiskt och genusvetenskapligt perspektiv och satt detta i perspektiv till läsningsdidaktik inom skolan. Resultatet visar att Sargassohavet lämpar sig väl för ändamålet, men att annan litteratur som inte har samma tydliga postkoloniala och feministiska teman också kan fungera. Den största slutsatsen som dras är att kritisk läsning snarare handlar om läsning med en efterföljande kritisk diskussion eller boksamtal. Det är troligt att svenskämnet skulle gynnas av att man införde kritisk läsning av skönlitteratur i kursplanerna då detta lämpar sig väl för att dels nå större förståelse för vad man läser, men också för att gynna arbetet mot fördomar.

    The Queen danced alone”: Court ballet in Sweden during the reign of Queen Christina (1638-1654)2018 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Queen Danced Alone: Court Ballet in Sweden during the Reign of Queen Christina (1638-1654) is the first monograph devoted to court ballet during Christina’s reign that offers an in-depth analysis of all the extant libretti of the performances. The Queen’s highly active patronage of this theatre form, and its development in Sweden in the framework of a cultural transmission from France, are elucidated as we follow Christina in her multiple roles of promoter, inventor and dancer of the ballets.

    Queen Christina of Swedendanced herself in the ballets she promoted. From the beginning of her personal rule until her abdication (1644–1654) court ballet was Christina’s privileged medium of political propaganda. The Queen Danced Alone is the first monograph on court ballet during Christina’s reign that offers an in-depth analysis of all extant libretti and performances. Based on unstudied and unpublished sources The Queen Danced Alone offers a survey of participants in the production and performances  – authors, dancers, musicians, artists – as well as the arts involved: dance, music, poetry, set design and costumes. Christina’s patronage is especially evident in the heroic motives of the ballets. Her self-fashioning through the parts of the goddesses Diana and Pallas mirrored her role as a young, unmarried and learned monarch and aimed at liberating her from the expectation of providing an heir to the throne. The praise of virtues such as self-control and chastity represented her as a superior being devoted to wisdom. Christina’s ballets supported her most important aim: independence.

    "Pero yo, que, aunque parezco padre, soy padrastro de Don Quijote": Narrativa y pactos literarios en dos obras españolas del Siglo de Oro2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats analyserar två spanska litterära verk från den period som brukar kallas den spanska guldåldern, och vilken betydelse paratexten och narrativet har för verkens mottagning som fiktion eller icke fiktion. De två verken, Don Quijote och Lazarillo de Tormes har gemensamt att de båda, trots att de är fiktion, framställs i prologen som icke-fiktion. De teorier och metoder som har använts har varit Manuel Albercas teori om tvetydiga läsarpakter (pactos ambiguos) och en kontextualisering med det sociala och literära klimatet under perioden. På så sätt har syftet varit att dra slutsatser om hur verkens falska faktualitet är uppbyggda och hur de fungerar, samt att försöka komma fram till om något i det samtida samhället kan ha bidragit till att verken utformades på det sätt de gjorde.

    Telling Tales Testing Boundaries: The Radicalism of Kerstin Ekman’s Norrland2014In: Journal of Northern Studies, ISSN 1654-5915, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 67-89Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Beginning with analyses of De tre små mästarna (1961) [Under the Snow] and Händelser vid vatten (1993) [Blackwater], this investigation into the representation of Norrland in the prose fiction of Kerstin Ekman draws on theoretical material by, among others, Umberto Eco, Mieke Bal, and Rosi Braidotti. The study revolves around the ways in which the texts are told and, especially, who is seeing the events narrated and the implications of this. The juxtaposition of different focalisers in Blackwater helps engage the reader in the novel’s central questions about memory, identity, environmental destruction, and interpretation. With the central character a troll from the forest, Rövarna i Skuleskogen (1988) [The Forest of Hours] develops a far-reaching critique of the western categories and boundaries used to determine what is ‘human’ and what is ‘animal’. In the trilogy The Wolfskin, consisting of Guds barm-härtighet (1999) [God’s Mercy], Sista rompan (2002) [‘The Last String’] and Skraplotter (2003) [‘Scratch Cards], a plot covering the whole of the twentieth century is focalised by a number of characters and involves the reader in issues to do with postcolonialism, environmentalism and ethics.

    Matti Aikio - verk og virke2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is a study of the literary works by the Sami author Matti Aikio, and of the impact his work had in Norway in his time. Aikio’s novels, articles, dramas and paintings were produced in the time period 1904−1929, a period when Norway as an independent nation state had limited tolerance for its Sami minority. Such an ethnic cultural understanding corresponded with the prevailing sentiment of social Darwinism of the time, in the transition from colonialism to imperialism.

    In this context Matti Aikio emerged as a Norwegian author with books written in Norwegian – but under a personally chosen, Sami sounding nom de plume. The objective of the dissertation is to disclose a possible contradiction between greater society’s expect­ations regarding assimilation and Aikio’s discreet presentation of Sami values in his literary works and professional activity. It has been discussed whether precisely the choice of tools at hand served to undermine his credibility with the Sami spokesmen of the time, but after the fact it has become evident that Aikio’s insistence on a collaborative line would have far better long-term results for the Sami language and culture.

    The analysis simultaneously seeks to substantiate that Aikio personally acquired a greater understanding of the diversity of the Sami culture in the course of his career – while simultaneously the tactics of the author’s long-term strategy for full equality for the Sami minority changed. From maintaining that the true Sami culture was found only in Karasjok, he ended up with a more modern and inclusive understanding of a Sami ethnic group with a multitude of languages and cultural expressions.

    Under The Skin: An Ahmedian perspective on the participants' emotions of disgust and pain in Go Back To Where You Came From2013Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay argues that Sara Ahmed’s methodology for reading the emotionality of texts, through its focus on the relationships between emotions, language and bodies, can be applied to the emotional responses of Australians to refugees and asylum seekers. This essay specifically focuses on the emotions of disgust and pain in the participants of Go Back To Where You Came From, a three-part Australian documentary/realia TV series, because these two emotions’ preoccupation with surface and proximity provide a useful metaphor for what can be observed in the participants’ emotionality. Sensuous proximity in the form of sight, taste, smell, touch and hearing underlies the disgust experienced by the Go Back participants, while shared surfaces enable the participants to feel the pain of others. The essay concludes that Ahmed’s methodology is indeed an effective tool for analysing the emotions of people “affected” by the transnational movements of others.
